DHCP server WNAP210

DHCP server WNAP210

Can I use the WNAP210 as a DHCP server? The manual seems to imply I can, but I don't see the option anywhere in the configuration settings.

Thanks.

Re: DHCP server WNAP210

G'day,

I had the same issue. I tried upgrading the firmware but still no options appeared in the web interface relating to DHCP server functionality. I also tried the listed commands in Appendix C during a terminal session but the the device didn't recognise the 'dhcp' command.

After getting in contact with Netgear support (a very tedious process) they confirmed that the documentation is incorrect regarding the WNAP210. Apparently the DHCP server functionality applies to a different, related model. It think it's simply a case of Netgear not updating the documentation between models.

I think the device will relay DHCP requests to another DHCP server on your LAN by default. At least that's what mine does.
